Not just since the render trailer linked below for the 9th edition of the Warhammer 40,000-Tabletops from Games Workshop, it was clear to many fans that this universe with its hundreds of books from the in-house publisher Black Library also had potential in the streaming series area.
However, the imperial motto “Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment” has so far come true: that of the actually very popular author Dan Abnett co-written animated film Ultramarines: A Warhammer 40,000 Movie from 2010 disappointed many fans. A series about Inquisitor Eisenhorn, announced in 2019, was never mentioned again after an initial press release. And for the in-house streaming and background material service Warhammer+ Games Workshop has produced some atmospheric content, but with a manageable budget.
Now, fans’ loyalty to the Emperor locked in his golden throne could still be rewarded: Games Workshop, Vertigo Entertainment and Amazon Studios have teamed up to bring Warhammer to televisions and other displays. The rights include “series, films and more”. The self-confessed Warhammer 40,000 fan Henry Cavill – the already Geralt in the The Witcheradaptation of Netflix is an initiator of this project. Cavill is said to be involved in the planned projects both as an actor and as an executive producer.
